International health and safety advocate  Dr Todd Conklin has spent 25 years at the Los Alamos National Laboratory, in New Mexico, where America's atomic bomb was developed. Throughout his career Todd has worked to improve workplace safety in industries like shipping, utilities, oil and gas, and forestry in the U.S.  He's speaking at six workshops around the country, where, as he tells Kathryn Ryan his core message is workers will make mistakes, and managers need to take more accountability so they can "fail safely".
